Atypical migranes or seizure or ???

Fifteen months ago I had two wisdom teeth pulled. The upper one got infected and don't know if it's related or just bad luck. Three days later I was driving and something weird happened with my vision and my body went into a full blown adrenaline rush. Thought i was going to die before I made it to the shoulder. Never had a panic attack before and thought I was having a heart attack but no chest pain. Just pounded out of control and hard. I'm one of those people that didn't go to doctors but couldn't get to the hospital quick enough. Docs did ordinary tests, blood etc. said I was fine and could go home. Was drained and very disoriented. Two weeks later same thing happened. Intervals of occurance were getting closer. Driving usually triggered it but not always. Sometimes just motion. Always driving at night then changed to driving period. Now I see halos around headlights and they are intensely brighter and blinding. Direct sunlight, reflections are very disturbing. Also I have an image of the light that lingers for sometimes minutes after, usually a green or purple spot as if I looked at somebody welding. Had tons of tests- 2 EEG , 2 MRI , heart monitor, adrenal gland test, bloodwork, inner ear tests, neuro-opthalmoligist, eye tests, been to johns Hopkins twice, admitted in the hospital lots of tests, bankrupting doctor bills and no answers except it might be migranes or seizures but they don't know. Depakote doesn't help. My hands tingle and are numb almost all the time. Anybody else have anything similar?
